You are clever if you know why you should not make any form of media announcement today – Yes, the royal bandwagon. 8,000 is the number of journalists and media that will be covering this wedding of the century.
The internet and social media play a big role in this media event royale. Yahoo! announces that Kate Middleton has gained more searches on Yahoo! Search than “Barack Obama,” “Donald Trump,” and even “Angelina Jolie.” PR View calls this wedding a Royal Wedding 2.0.
Let’s not talk about the 1,900 guests (which are hundreds more than my friends on Facebook) – including President Obama and the First Lady, and David and Victoria Beckham – the world is giving its fullest attention to the grand day. Live blogs all over. Go to Google page and check out their customized doodle.
Speaking about social media, it is also interesting how attendees were prohibited to tweet from the ceremony (oh, bummer!).
